of the middle east. as china, russia, iran, and north korea push for more advanced launch vehicles, the construction of an east coast site will dramatically improve the ability of our military to intercepted incoming threats by increasing the ability to engage and defeat those threats. with the 2009 cancellation of the missile defense site in poland, coupled with an increased threat environment, it's imperative that we continue to act to protect the homeland from the long range ballistic missile threat. i thank you for your consideration to this amendment. i want to again thank chairman culberson for his commitment. i yield back. the chair: the gentleman yields back. the gentleman from texas, for what purpose. mr. culberson: move to strike the last word. the chair: is recognized for five minutes. mr. culberson: i rise in strong support of this amendment and i thank my colleague from georgia and working with us on making sure we get this done. we are long overdue for any ballistic missile site on the continental united states here on the east coast in particular. my good friend from

piece of this legislation is intended to deter russia from what it's doing. mr. president, if you remember the geneva accord said that putin would move the russia troops away from the border that are intimidating people inside eastern ukraine. but i think what we've seen now is that -- quote -- "red line" has changed and now what the administration is focused on is them not actually going inside the country. but all of us understand that russia is actually accomplishing what it wishes to accomplish inside ukraine without even sending troops in, because they're able to do it, again with black ops. so what this piece of legislation that i'm -- that my friend from wyoming and so many others were involved in developing what this legislation does is lay down clear sanctions, first beginning today -- or after passage beginning with sanctions sanctions that hit several important entities in the banking sector and the energy sector so that we actually do something that affects the russian economy until such a time as they pull those troopsway from the border and they remove -- those troop
are standing, are sanctions impacting russia or its supporters in eastern ukraine? >> that's a very difficult question to ask. you'd have to say the ultimate intention of these sanctions is to prevent a russian invasion of eastern ukraine and if that invasion does not happen, was it due to the sanctioners not. i suspect we might be arguing about that for months or years to come, but as rewards the conduct of pro russian groups in the east, they don't seem deterred at all, quite the contrary. they seem more emboldened on each day, going very much on the offensive, they are on the front, sanctions or not. >> barnaby phillips for us in donetsk in eastern you a crane, thank you. >> parliamentary elections, first time they have headed to the polls since the u.s. pulled out in 2011. there are reports of attacks outside the capitol. we are at a polling side in baghdad. how has the turnout been so far where you are? >> this polling station in central baghdad, they are voting just through those doors, has about 3,500 registered voters, about 1,000 people have turned up so far. now what an independent
they were awarded we thought no problem. >> just like russia's putin that went smoothly. >>> and mr. halperin, the play on veep i'm sure you heard that mr. allen. let's talk business. harry reid said democrats are holding talks about a vote to prove the keystone pipeline. is that actually going to happen? >> they're actually going to have a vote. and this is a real surprise. it's a sign of how worried democrats are about the senate. yesterday, i was out at the milken conference in los angeles, did a poll, including a lot of democrats, asking them what they thought the chances were republicans could take every 0 the senate. nate silver said around 60%. dave leonhart said around 61%. the democrats i talked to said it's more like 60%. they are worried about a republican senate. so you have harry reid saying he might take a vote on approving the keystone pipeline. what's not determined is, will this be something that's binding will this be more a sense of the senate, as they call it. but the key fact, 11 senate democrats have signed a letter to president obama saying they want him to ap

which gets to ukraine, russia and benghazi guess what, they are not going to have any of that now. >> i think there is a perception that the president can't be trusted. >> yes. you have to admit that perception exists thrnches is a perception. >> my point is he is the leader of america, all right? we're having problems on a lot of of important fronts. wouldn't it be better for him to just be more can did it? he doesn't have to run again. just be more candid. don't pars and run and hide and on i obfuscate. they favor democrats 43, 34. healthcare 43, 35. middle class 53, 32, president obama and the poll is very bad news for him. >> when you look at the broader numbers on honesty and trustworthiness you find the same thing which is that those numbers have taken dramatic dive. >> big hit. >> boeckman and now. >> benghazi won't get reported. >> he has over two years left in this presidency. >> i know that when public confidence in the leader takes this kind of hit it's over. >> i'm glad you are watching the factor you you are not going to heart benghazi stuff. i will hun tore home people cov

decision, not a scientific one. this is politics at its mouth here. stuart: russia's vladimir putin. why don't we -- why don't we in america approve the export of liquefied natural gas? that would give us a great deal of leverage on energy over vladimir putin. >> absolutely. another example how our president does not understand that having a strong domestic economy, strong domestic energy policy translates into leverage on the geopolitical scale internationally because we could reduce russia's revenue from exporting their liquid natural gas by getting into the market. we could reduce that by 30% and keep in mind that 50% of russia's tax base comes from the sale of oil and natural gas but to many of our friends and allies in western europe. stuart: the president obviously knows this coming knows that if we export big time to europe we get leverage over vladimir putin. he knows this, why does he keep denying -- is it 23 permits that are on the table at the moment for the export of liquefied natural gas that are being held up? the president knows what is going on. why does he hold it up? >>
